A dedicated Culture Week launched by Zimbabwe’s government

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that the government was taking necessary measures in promoting the arts and culture sector as part of the resuscitation of the economy.

Officially launching this year’s edition of the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe-organised Zimbabwe Culture Week at the Glamis Arena in Harare, Emmerson Mnangagwa said government wanted to position cultural and creative industries as vital cogs in the recovery of the economy.

He said the week-long celebrations provided a platform for people from different walks of life to come together in fraternity.

‘This event is, thus, opportune as it affords us the chance to gather as one people, to celebrate our diverse cultures that define and give us a sense of pride and belonging’

“This event is, thus, opportune as it affords us the chance to gather as one people, to celebrate our diverse cultures that define and give us a sense of pride and belonging,” Mnangagwa said.

“I encourage the Ministry of Arts to continue to facilitate the necessary environment that is needed by artistes to produce, package and distribute their goods and services in a manner that enriches all, without prejudicing their creative impulses and energies. The practice of piracy should be condemned and stopped by producers and consumers of all creative arts.”
